Why is inspecting canned, frozen and convenience foods important?

Whether it is HACCP, IFS, BRC or another standard, food producers require certification and undergo audits to meet the retail industry’s quality and safety requirements. Consumers expect high-quality products. Goods containing contaminants that leave the factory can trigger very costly recalls that can tarnish a company’s reputation.

 

What kinds of contaminants can appear in canned, frozen and convenience foods?

Raw materials can be one source of organic and inorganic contaminants. Machine wear and careless staff are other potential sources. Typical contaminants include the following:

  • Stones
  • Metal parts, metal abrasion
  • Glass fragments
  • Plastics
  • Wood



What products can be inspected?

Our contaminant detection systems are used for a wide range of applications. Here are some examples

  • Instant meals
  • Microwave meals
  • Frozen fish fillets
  • Frozen pizzas
  • Peas
  • Green beans
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Corn
  • Cauliflower
  • Mushrooms
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Mixed vegetables
  • Pickles
  • Apple pieces
  • Olives

 

Where and how do manufacturers of Canned, frozen and convenience food use our machines?

Our metal detectors and X-ray scanners are suitable for a wide range of production steps and process stages, from receiving to the final inspection of already packaged products. The choice and ideal placement of a particular type of machine depend on the specific circumstances. We would be happy to advise you and help you find the best solution for your needs!

How artificial intelligence contributes to sustainable and profitable food processing

Despite the breadth of technology available for foreign object detection, certain types of food products remain difficult to inspect via conventional methods. The reason for this is that some foods have high levels of product effect, which can interfere with metal detection. This white paper examines the phenomenon of product effect, the problems it can cause, and why artificial intelligence offers an innovative and promising solution.
